Background - Davao-ComVal-Caraga
The Davao-ComVal-Caraga zone is situated at the eastern side of Mindanao.
Combined population of Compostela Valley and Davao regions is estimated at 4 million people. The total land area is approximately 20,000 square meters with Davao Oriental having the largest area. Poverty incidence among families is quite high especially in Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley. These regions are also registered with the highest number of influenced barangays by the rebel groups.
Given this, PAMANA will implement the reintegration program with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) this 2012.
PAMANA will focus on addressing three major issues:
1) Capacity of the LGUs to provide sustainable program for reintegration of former combatants
2) Development of psycho-social – debriefing tools or intervention program for mainstreaming
3) Mapping of possible support mechanism for former combatants across regions
